    Wow. Another twist. Scanning and repairing stuck at 10% for past 1 hour and more.

    Sounds like the hard drive is bad.

    The chkdsk didnt gave me any error log or report. And to my surprise, the scanning which stuck on 10% reached 100 percent with the blink of an eye. Here is the screenshot of the Disk Management. Please also tell me that I want to install Windows 7 in E: drive (as shown in the screenshot) can I do that ? I will shrink the C: drive to around 100 GB and let Windows 7 use the remaining.

    This is typical of a chkdsk that has found and repaired bad block(s). It can spend a very long time trying to recover data from the bad block then, once past the bad block, speeds up again. Type chkdsk in a command prompt without any switches to display the summary info for the drive. Does it list any bad blocks now? Your initial chkdsk should have written a report that can be read in the Event Viewer.

    The chkdsk report shows 0 errors. But here is another problem. I have three hard disks before the BSOD encounter. Now when i attached the remaining hard disks, one is OK and another is showing as 'Foreign' with a yellow error mark. Screenshot below.

    Disk 1 above needs to be reinitialized as a stand alone disk. It looks like it was part of a dynamic disk array before. Right click on the disk 1 square and should be a selection to initialize or convert to either MBR or GPT.

    Yes, you can install Windows 7 to E: drive. In order to shrink C: drive to add to E: drive you will have to use a program like MiniTool Partition Wizard:

    MiniTool Partition Wizard would also be an excellent tool to use to deal with Disk 1.

    Here is the screenshot of the BIOS,
    First picture - Windows 8/10 Features is set to Other OS, simply put, you have UEFI disabled.
    I guess it does not matter now, since you have installed Windows using MBR partition.

    I have a lot of data in Disk 1, should i backup all the data (its very time consuming) before initializing or converting it into GPT ?
